Hey dudes! Here's the list for Week 50 consideration. As you know, Time Columns came out on top last week, and Linz & I are pretty excited to give them a thorough listening. Thanks so much for the reviews on all of the submissions from last week, we analyze those a bit more than the polling results, it seems to carry more weight. I'm a bit under the weather right now, so I'm going to keep this intro short and sweet and get to the music. And for those of you checking out the Demo Drawer for the first time, here's an explanation of what this is all about:

Quote:
Hey guys, week after week we have a lot of potentially badass bands sending us potentially mind-blowing demos, but we simply cannot listen to everything we receive. So we thought it would be cool if you guys helped us out a little bit and checked these bands out for us. Then let us know what you think of them and which ones we should definitely give a solid listen to. Why? Well, your taste in music is obviously the best in the world, and again, we are inundated with these and can't possibly sift through them on our own!

So we'll do this weekly or bi-weekly, and you guys can rate them all on a scale of 1 to 5 or whatever, and leave some comments about why you scored it the way you did. You can also vote up your favorite in the poll.


Here's a few that we've got to check out this week...

Dionaea:
http://dionaea.bandcamp.com/album/still

Garadh:
http://garadh.com/fr_home.cfm (navigate to multimedia section)

Cursed Kingdom:
http://www.myspace.com/cursed_kingdom

Kubark:
http://kubark.bandcamp.com/album/ulysses

Ian Stuart:

Sinatra:
http://sinatradc.bandcamp.com/album/lost-in-hyrule-6

Pilot To Gunner:
http://www.pastepunk.com/site/stream-pi ... ty-guilty/

So listen to 'em, make a post below, rate and review each act, and then vote for your favorite in the poll. If nothing else, maybe we'll be exposing these guys to potential new fans that can help spread the word about their music.

Dionaea:
3.0 - these guys have some potential. sounds a bit video-gamey in a few parts, but overall fairly decent.

Garadh:
2.0 - it's really unfortunate when a band has a singer that destroys all that could be really good about them. (fyi, without the singer, i would have given them a 3.5)

Cursed Kingdom:
0 - hell no. who the fuck uses myspace these days, anyway?

Kubark:
4.0 - this reminds me a LOT of Junius' 'Martyrdom' album. i could CERTAINLY tune in and chill the fuck out to this.

Ian Stuart:
0 - no. no tunes, no listen, no score. piss off, pal.

Sinatra:
1.5 - horrible choice for a band name, especially when your singer sucks this bad. the ONLY reason they got a 1.5 was because the music wasn't COMPLETE garbage before the vocals kicked in

Pilot To Gunner:
1.5 - Hot Water Music called, they want their unreleased b-side demos back.

Woo! Week two!, same 1-5 scale. Probably wont be as detailed

Dionaea - 2.5 they had me til they turned it into a math core fest. I like math core, but man that totally killed anything they had going. Just does not mix well into other genres.

Garadh - 1.5 singer ruined this one for me

Cursed Kingdom - 0. No.

Kubark - 4. Definitely had the Junius feel to it. Me RIKEY

Ian Stuart - wow, -8000 for no songs and being bad at comedy

Sinatra - 1 another decent band ruined by vocals that don't fit

Pilot To Gunner - .5 No thanks

Winner this week for me is Kubark

Garadh:
I'll agree with other peoples here. Music is pretty good, singer if terribew. 2

Cursed Kingdom:
Yea...no. 0

Kubark:
Fuck yes. They sound good 4

Ian Stuart:
Based off other people's posts, I'm not even going to bother

Sinatra:
Promising start until the vocals kicked in. No thanks. 1

Pilot To Gunner:
Not TERRIBLE, but doesn't do anything for me. 1.5
